Young wingers Adam Johnson and Theo Walcott were two of the more surprising omissions from England's final 23-man World Cup roster, revealed on Tuesday afternoon.

Veterans Joe Cole and Shaun Wright-Phillips did make the cut as England manager Fabio Capello chose to go with experience over youth in his final selections.

Here is England's squad:

Goalkeepers: Joe Hart, David James, Robert Green. Defenders: Jamie Carragher, Ashley Cole, Rio Ferdinand, Glen Johnson, Ledley King, John Terry, Matthew Upson, Stephen Warnock.

Midfielders: Gareth Barry, Michael Carrick, Joe Cole, Steven Gerrard, Frank Lampard, Aaron Lennon, James Milner, Shaun Wright-Phillips.

Forwards: Peter Crouch, Jermain Defoe, Emile Heskey, Wayne Rooney.

What do you think of the squad? Surprised to see Walcott left out and/or Johnson left out? Think the United States can beat this England team?
